You saw them at the movies. You saw them on TV. You saw them instead of studying for your finals. Now you can watch the world class Looneynessas never before in this 2-Disc collection featuring 50 theatrical shorts dazzlingly remastered and presented with a stunning audio and visual experience. The fun begins on Disc One where you'll find Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and Porky Pig - plus Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote, Pepé Le Pew, Foghorn Leghorn and Speedy Gonzales - in a dizzily delightful showcase of cartoon icons at their animated best.
While Disc Two explodes with one-shot classics and complete collections from Marvin the Martian, the Tasmanian Devil, Witch Hazel, Marc Anthony and Ralph Phillips. These outstanding shorts from the Warner Bros. vault stand out even more in their newly remastered brilliance. Now more than ever, they're a must-see.
This past November saw high-def Blu-ray Disc format releases of the Looney Tunes Platinum Collection: Vol. 1, in both standard and high-end limited-edition versions. Now Warner Home Video has decided to release this title on DVD format as well, in a 2-disc set scheduled for July 3rd, and priced at $26.99 SRP. The package art, shown below, is the same as the Blu-ray version, and the list of cartoon shorts will look familiar as well:
